. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the majority of americans are christian and we do not ban blasphemy against our own most sacred believes. i expect people will call me the most awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> reporter: seeing an inflexion point after the arab spring, the president called on the world's leaders to champion the same values. >> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocence. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> reporter: and president obama resisted campaign season pressure to intensify his rhetoric against iran. instead, he reiterated in stark terms his commitment to diplomacy and consequences if that fails. >> a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained.
understands why it -- [ inaudible ] >> home to muslims across our country. we respect the freedom of religion. >> the president insisted his policy is not containment. >> make no mistake. nuclear armed iran is not a challenge to be contained. a coalition of countries is holding the iranian government accountable. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran obtaining nuclear weapon. >> despite the threat of possible military action. the president again asked for more time to let sanctions work. although another year has passed since he used the same forum at the u.n. to demand tehran shape up. >> iranian government cannot demonstrate its program is peaceful. it has not met its obligation and it rejects offers that would provide it with the peaceful nuclear power. >> this is why israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has warned the world is running out of time. republicans blasted the president for not meeting with netanyahu or any other world leader here one-on-one. first lady had time to yuck it up on "the view." >> i brought him with me. he had a few minutes in missc
the territory, the thing is that most of these guys don't really even have a good understanding of religion. they just take over the place and they are nothing but really bandits. >> every fighter we saw there said the weapons that the radicals were using, the rpgs, the guns, had come from libya. >> libya. >> is that your belief of what happened? that those are the weapons that then came into mali? and cost you a country. >> there were a lot of bands roaming there, but there were not these sophisticated -- when it comes to weaponry. we had a sophisticated weapon from the libyan army smuggled into the desert by groups. and they have now taken foothold and don't want to let go. and it is so -- those weapons are so sophisticated that the malian army doesn't stand a chance to fight against them. >> when you say they don't stand a chance, is it fair to say if the united states and the u.n. do not get involved, that they could take over the entire country, they could take over other countries? >> actually, we are at the point now that every night i'm worried that this guy would have the idea to c
